No more gas cap!

Now this I can get behind.  No more gas caps left at the service station or flapping in the wind!

Looks like a rubber sleeve kind of hugs the fuel pump as it goes in and then a trapdoor is forced open by the tip of the fuel pump nozzle.

I don't know if I like this capless fuel tank yet. Seems to me that dirt and debris could settle down in that recess and there would be no way to clean it out. Just seems it would shorten the life of the fuel filter.

Good point. I wonder how tight the seal is on the door.

April 18, 2009 | Registered CommenterBill Wood

Actually the seal on this is much tighter than the seal on the average cars fuel inlet. The design is much more complicated than it looks. Ford won an award for it. Another misconception about it is that it was designed for the purpose of convenience, but this is not true. It was designed because of global warming. Ford is also going to increase the amount of cars over the next couple of years that offer Flex Fuel engines for the same reason. Glad Ford is taking the lead on these things.

Interesting - what is it about the capless fuel tank that affects global warming?

April 19, 2009 | Registered CommenterBill Wood

Hi Bill :)

I doubt that I'll have the time to track down the link for the article that talked about it in detail, but feel free to google it if you need a more detailed explanation. Basically, as I understand it, every time that someone unscrews a gas cap harmful vapors are released and enter into the atmosphere. These harmful vapors help to promote global warming. The new Ford "Easy Fuel" system does not allow ANY vapors to escape or enter into the atmosphere. The frosting on the cake is that it is also easier to use. In a way, you could say that the Ford hybrid is the most Earth friendly hybrid available :)

That makes sense; my Audi makes a huge sound of rushing air when I open the gas cap. Here's a link I found:

Here's another one:

Good point about the dash light not coming on because of a bad seal with the gas cap. This is one feature that people might not notice when they first buy the car, but they will grow to love it as they see it's benefits.

I can't wait to fill up my new Milan Premier for the first time :)
